Summary:
"The discipline is now attracting the interest of architects from a wide range of cultural and stylistic camps, and the variety and quality of the solutions being tried out and proposed has made urban design today one of the liveliest and most stimulating areas of architectural theory and practice. This detailed and scholarly study examines the main response to urban design to have emerged in recent years, looks at the problems and arguments that have generated them, and considers the directions which are now open to us. After an introductory chapter on the economic, technical, social and ecological problems facing urban designers, authors ... discuss through a series of case-studies drawn from all over the world, the several varied, often opposed solutions proposed"--provided by publisher.
